I just saw IT and if you are a horror fan, you are doing yourself a disservice by not going to see it.
I saw "IT" film too. I really liked the movie. "IT" has broken box office records so far for best R rated movie on a Thursday and horror movie and grossing R rated movie. I think the movie has too much to make for a plot for one episode but I wouldn't mind an attempt, it could still make a fun episode. In the movie, with the kids talking about and deal with puberty, that part of the film was potent. I was left a lot thinking of sex when watching the movie. I felt awkward when the girl was in her bra and panties and the boys were in their underwear. I movie did good at making me think of child like sex fantasies. I think the film could have been more gory. Seeing Georgie's arm bit off and some of the dead bodies were good. Or all the blood coming out the sink. I think there could have been a few more macabre scenes but it was a long movie already. I know there will be one more, I hope they do a good job with that film.

Todays my birthday and I just got accepted to Sac State College! A problem is the Business Major I want is impacted. I just finished the supplemental application and so I hope everything turns out okay.

So, no one wants to talk about the Las Vegas shooting with, Stephen Paddock, but I will. That guy, we don't know about and his motive but here are my thoughts. I came up with my own thoughts of that his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was a mail order bride. Also, I get the impression Paddock didn't believe in love but wanted a wife or girlfriend to be with as a trophy, a show piece. I kind of think he did this because he felt like a loser. He was getting older, he didn't work anymore, he could have been running low on luck, its not easy to gamble like he did and win all the time. Also, he gave Marilou 100K before he killed people and she got a plane ticket home. I'd believe that his will leaves lots more to Marilou. Marulou is a poor 62 year old from the Philippines, she has married a lot that we know about and once had two husbands at once. She seems like a money hungry women. I think Paddock wanted to look cool, like some sort of caring person. So, he became a anti-American as Marilou must be, so he feeds her whole family and showers them with money and kills their enemy, Americans. He martyred himself as a kind of Filipino Nationalist. Also, lots of these mail order brides will stay for a while or while its good but usually they will find a way to return back home and never come back, they just ditch you. I think Paddock found he couldn't get a women that would be loyal and not sleep around, while he ditched her to go play cards at casinos. Paddock has an old concept of husband and wife that isn't followed anymore. So, I think Paddock wanted to go out a hero to Marilou but he just knew she was going to leave him and there was nothing but money and show between them. Also, there is Paddock's fathers history with being wanted by the FBI. That may play into influencing Paddock or some would say could show that he inherited a criminal mind from his father. I know I'm probably leaving something out but this case is crazy. This guy Paddock had a very sophisticated setup and could have kill many more. He had cameras in food carts to monitor the halls for when the SWAT team arrived. If he had just covered up all the vents and doors and alarms, say with towels, plastic bags and tape, than police would have had a harder time locating where the shooting was coming from. He may of had several more minutes of shooting. Also he could have used poisonous bullets, he probably would have killed hundreds if he had done that. He killed so far 58 and committed suicide, making it 59. He shot over 500 people or left them injured. he had all these explosives and a gun is missing. I also heard he tried to get a hotel room like the one he shot out of when Lorde was performing. Does anyone have any thoughts on what happened? I think Paddock imagined himself a knight in shining armor coming to save his Filipino girl.

it's hard to talk about such things. for two reasons: 1. so many people died and it's like, they died for no reason. so people quite often do not know what to say; 2. is it even appropriate to talk about the murderer? fact is, people who resort to killing in such a way are certainly desperate but are most often also desperate for attention. talking about them just means to give them what they want. i'd rather talk about the victims, each and every of them.

I understand you, I'm more FBI Profiler type and your more Anderson Cooper.

that's flattering. :mrgreen: also, i agree that the profiling thing is important, maybe it can help prevent things like this from happening in the future.

however, i see that the guys at New York Times agree with me and wrote the story of each and every victim: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/02/us/v ... &smtyp=cur

that's a good piece of journalism imho.

It's my birthday today!

No cool South Park merch, but a friend drew me some art and I'll probably buy myself a little SP something later. :)

Happy birthday JVM.
South Park is way funnier than Family Guy.
Also Mr. Garrison and Donald Trump are two SEPARATE people with completely different career backgrounds.

I just finished college for the semester. I don't know my final grades yet but I think I have got all A's. I know I got an A in Business Law and Figure Drawing. I had a 98% in Math and took the final today. I think I got like an 80% or better on it. I had some trouble with 5 of them but I only needed a 64% on the final to still get an A in the class. I handed in my portfolio book for creative writing class. The professor said most people get an A in the class so I think I will too.

I'll have the next like 37 days with nothing to do. I am thinking of writing some more for fun. I'd like to see how far I can get with my Hrazzabia story and I have a new story I'd like to write. The new one would be controversial as it deals with a pedophile young Marine who falls in love with an 11 year old Muslim girl.

I think I'll be able to chat here more now and add in some more episode ideas.

I've got Sac State to go to around January 23rd. So, lots of free time to drink and be drunk.
